Once upon a time
     A chord diagramA7A7
In a nursery rhyme
            A chord diagramD9D9
There was a castle with a king
Hiding in a wing
                                                      A chord diagramD9D9
'Cause he never went to school to learn a single thing

       A chord diagramG9G9
He had scepters and swords
      G9#5
And a parliament of lords
           A chord diagramC6C6
But on the inside he was sad
Egad!

Because he never had a wisdom for numbers

"To the Missus and the Messers
   A chord diagramGdim7Gdim7             A chord diagramG MajorG
The more or lessers
         A chord diagramE MajorE
Bring me all the land's professors"
Then she went to the hair dressers

G7#     A chord diagramC majorC
And they came from the east
         A chord diagramA7A7
And they came from the south
          A chord diagramD9D9                  Bdim/F
From each college they poured knowledge
           A chord diagramD9D9
From their brains into his mouth

        A chord diagramBdimBdim
But the king couldn't learn
           A chord diagramE7E7
So each professor met their fate

He said "I'm the dirty rascal
        A chord diagramA7A7
And I'm here to teach the king"

        A chord diagramD9D9
And the queen clutched her jewels
        A chord diagramG7G7
For she hated royal fools
         A chord diagramD9D9            A chord diagramG7G7
But this fool had some rules
            A chord diagramC majorC                 A chord diagramC7C7
They really ought to teach in schools

            A chord diagramDb6Db6        A chord diagramBb7Bb7
Like you'll be a happy king
         A chord diagramEb9Eb9     Db6/F         Gbm(maj7)
If you enjoy the things you've got
A chord diagramGm7b5Gm7b5      A chord diagramCm7b5Cm7b5        A chord diagramF7F7

        Db/Ab       A chord diagramB7b5B7b5
And they ran onto a rainbow for
    A chord diagramBb majorBb
The story's perfect end

       A chord diagramEbM7Ebm7         A chord diagramEdim7Edim7
So the moral is you mustn't let

The outside be the guide
         A chord diagramB7b5B7b5           A chord diagramBb7Bb7
For it's not so cut and dried
Well unless it's Dr. Jekyll
                     A chord diagramBb7Bb7
Then you better hide
          B/A A chord diagramBb majorBb
Petrified

        A chord diagramEbM7Ebm7
No, the truth can't be denied
     A chord diagramAbAb       A chord diagramBbmBbm  A chord diagramE7E7
As I now have testified
